There is an article in PDF format by David Lemon on T1 hinting. All the links I find for it no longer work. Does anybody happen to have this article?

Edit: Basic Type 1 Hinting by David Lemon now attached.

Perhaps we need a place for handy old articles without a home on the web. Maybe we can beef the wiki up somehow.

In this case, Stephen if you'd attach it that'd be great!

I’m interested as well.

Hey, all. I'm the somebody who sent Stephen a copy of the article. Here's a link to it:


The Fontographer screen shots are a bit out of date but the principles are the same in FontLab or whatever.

(I'll remove it if anyone objects.)

By the way, the article has no date on it (not even in the PDF metadata), but I would guess, judging from some of the references in it, that David wrote it sometime between 1998 and 2001.

Mark, the article dates from 1996. David gave this presentation on PS hinting at the ATypI conference in The Hague that year.

Thanks, John. My guess was based on his mention of FontLab 3 (Windows version released in 1998) in the present tense and FontLab 4 (released in 2001) in the future tense. Maybe this was an updated version of his ATypI presentation?

Quite likely.

Mark if you'd like to give the article to me I can add it to the first post.
